What I'm Wearing | Houndstooth, Yellow & {faux} Leather

6:00 PM

Baby, it's cold outside!  Finally we have coat weather!  If you don't live in the south or climate that hardly gets all four seasons, you probably don't understand my glee.  I'm seriously excited that the temperature finally matches the naked trees!
Today, I pulled out my favorite coat.  This is my houndstooth coat that I made a few years ago.  This is a project that I was really proud of doing.  I put A LOT of hand tailoring work into it and I even perfectly matched the print at the seams.  Go me!  I
houndstooth tights!

I've been loving houndstooth, especially the large scale this season since I laid eyes on the Salvatore Ferragamo Fall 2011 Collection I'd previously blogged about.  Finding houndstooth fabric in anything other than quilting cotton has been uneventful for me.  So I'll just relish in the fact that my coat was already in my collection!
Underneath the coat I wore my pleated faux leather skirt.  
Worn with a yellow cable knit scoop neck sweater, red belt, Steve Madden wedges and my Elliott Lucca bag.

  14. I understand your comment about four seasons!! I grew up in Houston and I say that Houston has two seasons - summer for 9 months and then the rest of the seasons crammed together in 3 months. LOVE the coat!!
